ESPAÑOL

If you worked in 2016 and earned less than $54,000, we invite you to come to one of our neighborhood tax preparation sites to have your taxes prepared and filed for free.

The Boston Tax Help Coalition wants to make sure that if you qualify for EITC you receive it. The EITC is a refundable credit for people who work. This year the EITC is worth up to $6,269. If you are eligible, you earned this money, so don’t let your refund go unclaimed!

More importantly, don’t spend any of your refund paying for tax preparation – get your taxes prepared and filed for FREE at a neighborhood tax preparation site and keep the money in your pocket! SAVE it or use it to build a better future for you and your family. See how this service can benefit you!
